Write your story, change history - Brad Meltzer | Teach Like a PIRATE! CBRE report warns 50 per cent of occupations will be redundant in 20 years time Japan's SoftBank Corp is developing human-like robots which it will use to staff its cellphone stores From self-driving cars to carebots for elderly people, rapid advances in technology have long represented a potential threat to many jobs normally performed by people. But experts now believe that almost 50 per cent of occupations existing today will be completely redundant by 2025 as artificial intelligence continues to transform businesses. A revolutionary shift in the way workplaces operate is expected to take place over the next 10 to 15 years, which could put some people's livelihoods at risk. Customer work, process work and vast swatches of middle management will simply 'disappear', according to a new report by consulting firm CBRE and China-based Genesis. 'Experts predict that 50 per cent of occupations today will no longer exist by 2025 as people will take up more creative professions,' said Martin Chen, Chief Operating Officer of Genesis.

Student Projects « My Mathima Consider projects as a hidden treasure. That x which marks the spot where all the efforts meet or where they might begin. Some are small, just simple tasks we go through to add some of ourselves to whatever it is we’re learning; others are immense, they are born to us, they develop through us, they shape and take our learning forward. Whether you’ll go for TBL (task-based learning) or PBL (project-based learning), you’ll discover that placing yourself as a teacher in the background, you give learners the opportunity to see things for themselves; to experience what it’s like to have questions and pursue the answers to them. It is all about the skills, yes; the skills we should all try and develop, the skills that can bring meaning to our future and their future. Please keep in mind that ‘background’ doesn’t mean ‘absence’. I’ve always taken things one at a time.

Mindset Matters Mindset is about believing in yourself. Carol Dweck, the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology and author of "Mindset" discovered in her research at Stanford that belief guides a large part of your life. Much of what you think of as your personality actually grows out of this "mindset" and could prevent you from fulfilling your potential. You can have either a fixed mindset or a growth mindset. Think about someone you know who has a fixed mindset. Did you ever wonder why they are this way? All of us are born with a love of learning. Think about a time you were enjoying a crossword puzzle, trying a new sport, or learning a new dance when it started to become too difficult. Now think about someone you know who is skilled in the growth mindset -- someone who understands that important qualities can be cultivated. What are some ways you might like to change or stretch yourself? Picture yourself in a growth mindset around any activity you felt was too difficult.

My mother, a fine artist, raised me with the idea that I could draw whatever I wanted and especially to draw my own way including outside the lines. I was raised to be creative, to come up with new ideas and to ask lots of questions. I was able to read early and used to put on plays with my younger sisters. I laughed and giggled all the time.With a full head of red curls, people wanted to touch and play with my hair. My first day of school was exciting and scary. She had everyone introduce themselves and then had us divide into groups by hair color. I pushed myself to be part of the class. Not one teacher in my K-12 experience ever asked me why I felt the way I did about school or why I was so quiet. I secretly cried about school.

A Letter To Myself Updated Personalization vs. Differentiation vs. Individualization Chart Version 3 Personalization v Differentiation v Individualization (PDI) Chart (Version 3) The PDI chart was created for a reason: to clarify the differences in these terms.

The other two, Differentiation and Individualization are teacher-centered. It has been some time since we initially published the PDI Chart in January 2012. We updated the chart again to version 3 from your feedback. Individualization involves assessment OF learning.
